The latest from WAPPA
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending and presenting at the Pilbara Principals’ Briefing on Tuesday as well as the Midwest Briefing Day on Friday. Connecting with members is critical and I was really pleased to see (and hear) a positive vibe at both events.
As we move towards the end of what has been a very different year, I trust that you will take time to enjoy the outcomes of your efforts during the next week. The work you and your staff have done is to be truly celebrated as you head into the well earned holidays.
I am not sure I really want to hear again, nor say, the terms to describe this year as being challenging or different or even unprecedented. I was chatting with someone the other day about (according to Mark Twain) there only being two certainties in life - death and taxes. However, we joked that now we can include change as a third element.
The WAPPA Wellbeing Committee, as part of their work, has developed a Wellbeing Mantra. The committee encourages you to print the mantra and place it somewhere prominent in your office where you can refer to it regularly. This version of the mantra is designed for you to use in your schools.
WAPPA will work with you to customise professional learning to meet the unique learning needs of your group (e.g. chapters, collegial groups, school leadership team).
